Rachael King was baptized on October 14, 2018 in front of her parent’s church family. Following is her confession of faith in Christ. We pray that you are as encouraged as we are to see the continuing to prove Himself faithful and good.
“When I was about 10 years old I asked my parents when I was going to get baptized. They explained what baptism was. I never really thought about being saved before that time because it never really occurred to me.
I started thinking about what my parents had told me. Since then, I have been to 2 different church camps plus the movement between 2 different churches. I have now learned about how God works in the most mysterious yet awesome ways and He has a purpose for everyone. God also sent His Son as a penalty for our sins, and a couple weeks ago at youth we were told a very detailed explanation of the death of Jesus. He suffered through so many things just for us.
This means a lot to me. The fact that a man who is fully God and fully human came down and died for our sins is amazing and just a relief. Many people think when they hear this that their sins are paid for completely and that they can do whatever they want, but they have to accept him into their heart to become saved.
God has really grown me spiritually in the past 2 or 3 years. The camp that I went to this summer really taught me a lot about Him which was great. So, I stand here today proclaiming that I am a follower of the one true and awesome God. I am very excited to continue my journey with Christ with the amazing brothers and sisters that I have through him.”
